First of all I would like to say thank you to the community for all of the great info here! I have a 9530 and with the help of everyone here I was able to get it working successfully on ATT. With the good advice from several users I was able to swap my radio to .90 and have had nothing but good times with my Storm.
Now I want to share some little tidbit I found recently that made my Storm1000 times easier to use. It is called SMARTESTCOVER, it is an invisible keyboard for the Storm that is applied like a screen cover. It provides a tactile guidance system for the virtual keyboard and has helped my typing accuracy soo much. Since I am new I cant post any links but if you Google it you will find it in the top 10 results.
Thank you again everyone...
